Major League Wrestling returns to New York City on Thursday night with MLW Battle Riot live from the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY. Cameras will be rolling for a 2-hour special that will air on beIN SPORTS next Friday night, July 27th.

The headline match will be the first-ever Battle Riot match, a 40-man anything goes battle royal that will begin with two participants in the ring and another new participant every 60 seconds. Eliminations can take place via pinfall, submission or a wrestler being thrown outside the ring to the floor at ringside. The winner of MLW Battle Riot will earn an opportunity to challenge for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship any time they choose. 

There have been some late additions to the card, which you can see below.

If you’re in the NYC area, a limited number of tickets have been made available after MLW finalized the production setup. We’ll be there – visit MLWTickets.com so you can too.

As a reminder, you can watch MLW’s weekly television show FUSION on Youtube, if you don’t have the beIN SPORTS cable channel. New episodes of MLW FUSION are uploaded to MLW’s YouTube channel every Saturday night at 6:05pm ET.
